Police say they have yet to make any arrests in the beating of a former opposition commune councilor on Monday.

Khiev Din, 65, was attacked at about 11 a.m. while riding his motorbike in Phnom Penh to pick up his grandson from school. Surveillance footage that captured the attack shows two men on a motorbike pulling up to Din from behind and striking him on the head with a blunt object.

National police spokesman Chhay Kim Khoeun said on Friday that the investigation was ongoing.

“There’s no complicated reason. There’s just not enough information, identification,” Kim Khoeun said. “The lack of information is quite important.”

This isn't the first assault of an ex-opposition member to happen since the dissolution.

I recall one, maybe two within the last year of so.

Is it just some low level party members feeling their oats, making sure the defunct opposition knows where the bear shits in the woods?

Or is it something a bit more sinister that reaches higher than that?

Stories like this are crying out for a savvy investigative journalist.......alas.

Bike in the pic has no number plate. So they probably got pulled over by the boys in blue around the corner under that new government initiative to clamp down on vehicles with no plates ...

My commune.

Dunno the beef.

The current Chief doesn't need these antics as he is very popular and busy.
